Questionnaire

Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

1. Free enterprise and the right to private property turn mankind's natural self interest into the fairest and most productive economic system there is, and are the key to national prosperity.

Strongly Agree

2. Election of judges by the people for a definite term of office is the best way to select judges.

Strongly Agree

3. More restrictive gun control laws are needed now to protect public safety.

Strongly Disagree

4. Efforts to bring Islamic law (shariah) to America do not pose a threat to our country and its Constitution.

Strongly Disagree

Strongly Agree

6. People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree

7. Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Strongly Agree

8. Marriage is a union of one man and one woman. No government has the authority to alter this definition.

Strongly Agree

9. The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) should be repealed by Congress.

Strongly Agree

10. There should be a strict constitutional spending limit for state and local governments that would tie the rate of spending to the rate of population growth plus the rate of inflation.

Neutral

11. Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree

12. Free market competition for education dollars, rather than a government monopoly, would create a better education for all students.

Strongly Agree

13. Where minor children are involved, divorce laws should be reformed to include mutual consent of both parents and an increased waiting period, unless there is fault or abuse.

Agree

14. The Ten Commandments should not be displayed in public school buildings.

Strongly Disagree

15. Religious freedom is our most foundational freedom and deserves added protection in our state and federal constitutions.

Agree

16. The founders established pure democracy in the Constitution because they believed that it is the best form of government to ensure the safety and equitable treatment of all citizens.

Strongly Disagree

17. Our state should participate in the nationwide Common Core standards for high-school graduation.

Strongly Disagree

18. What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers within the Constitution?

The Founders saw first hand what happens when any one person has too much power and the dangers of no one being able to check that power. The Founders wanted fixed rule of law so that every citizen would have protection regardless of the "changing times", regardless of the emotions of the majority and regardless of the mob wanting to take property for the "common good". The purpose of a representative is to secure, not give people, but secure individual rights with their vote in Congress.

19. Based on the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, please arrange the following entities, starting with the highest source of authority, and continue the list in descending order of authority, skipping any that do not apply: Academia, Congress, Constitution, God, Industry, Media, Professional Sports, Supreme Court, Voters.

God, Constitution, Voters, Congress, Supreme Court.

20. Should abortion be allowed under extenuating circumstances? If so, what circumstances?

No. The duty of government is to prevent the shedding of innocent blood. Government does not have the authority to shed innocent blood so it cannot give an authority it does not have to others. Government is to protect life, liberty and property, in that order.

21. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian first and my religion second. I believe for any society to survive and prosper it must have a core set of moral absolutes (certain things are always right, certain things are always wrong, regardless of the changing times or attitudes). I believe those fixed values come from Jesus Christ and even though none of us are perfect, we should always strive to do what is right. No society can succeed when values are allowed to shift and change and people believe freedom means they can do what they will.
